Arizona Democratic state Rep. Diego Espinoza referred to a new abortion law in the state as “anti-families, anti-woman, and anti-doctor” in a rebuke of his Republican governor.
Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey on Tuesday signed Senate Bill 1457 into law, banning the abortion of unborn children on the basis of non-life-threatening genetic abnormalities such as Downs syndrome.
“Gov. Ducey’s decision to sign SB1457 is not pro-life. It is anti-families, anti-woman, and anti-doctor. I’m disappointed to see Arizona moving in this direction, ignoring the needs and desires of doctors, women, and families for an extreme political agenda,” Espinoza tweeted Tuesday.
